Learn the secrets of a cuisine relished within all corners of Turkey but rarely experienced by outsiders.
After we meet we will stop for a Spice tasting session in a Spice shop that has been there since 5 generations.
Then we will take a ferry to the Asian side of Istanbul. We will teach you how to make a traditional home-cooked Turkish meal. For lunch, you will savor what you have cooked!
Dishes are approachable and easy to replicate in your home country. Detailed recipe booklets are offered to keep. We shop daily for her groceries so the ingredients are seasonal and fresh.
A sample menu might include a choise of 6 dishes from below:
At 9:30 am we meet in front of the Spice Bazaar, also known as the Egyptian Market, which is located just across the street from the Galata bridge on the Old City side of the Golden Horn, along Ragip Gumuspala Caddesi. The Spice Bazaar (called Misir Carsisi in Turkish) is set back from the road and shares a piazza with a large mosque called Yeni Cami (Yeni mosque). We meet just to the right of the entrance to the Bazaar where there is also a little supermarket here with a red and blue sign saying "Itimat".
